    This is very good initiatives to share the learing on advanced sanitation to Health, dignity and security amongst South Ashian Countries at very higher level. It is also very good opprtunity to review the update progress and innovation. apart of good think, it is also very important to look it the country wise committment, minister level efforts what done after organised SACOSAN 3 cosistentely. what It felt as Sanitation expert, it is a matter of sense, committment and honest work towards achieveing MDG7. we talk a lot but what is our country startey and programmes, despite falgship national program, what we achieved so far . see the UNICEF-WHO Joint program reports, it is very clear evident that we are so far away with MDG 7 by 2015, heence we must think, execuate and monilse more funds and appeal to international development organisation and UN for making more budget on sanitation. Sanitation is indeed achievable, part of security and dignity. I wish all the best of all of them who are involved to make it succesful.

    what is procedure to for regsitration?
